What about updating?  Have you since tried that?  If not, then I think the
problem is actually that you don't have Cygwin in your Windows path so the
'sshd' service can't find cygwin1.dll.  Add 'c:\cygwin\bin' to your Windows
path.  You can accomplish this through the "System" applet in the Control
Panel.  Set it for everyone (not just you) as an environment variable.
